Jose Mier here, hunkered down like the rest of you. It seems unbelievable but Mayor Eric Garcetti has said Sun Valley and the rest of greater Los Angeles will not reopen for at least three more months. How we are expected to maintain a living during another ninety days of shutdown is unknown. Additionally, the mayor says we won’t reopen until there’s a cure for the coronavirus.
I have to wonder what this will mean in light of the fact that there is no cure for the flu which affects millions around the world every year. Despite this, will have never shut down everything each time flu season comes around. Indeed, we don’t think anything of flu season. It’s merely something that occurs. Yes, some who contract the flu do die and tens of thousands of people do fall victim to a strain of the flu each year. Again, we take this in stride. It’s part of life, but we don’t shut down.
Three additional months of lockdown will be devastating to a city and state that is already suffering (perhaps worse from the shutdown than from the virus itself). In light of this, we need to do what we can to help maintain our Sun Valley economy the best we can.
I’ve written before about supporting our Sun Valley restaurants but I think it’s time once again to encourage people to take out and keep our restaurants in business. To that end I’m listing some of my favorite Sun Valley eating places and suggest you make a point to order some food to go if your finances will permit it. Here’s a short list which I’ll add to in the coming days.
